Gromann, senior partner at Smith and Gromann PA, a specialty real estate law firm; Frank Marshall, a frequent speaker at conferences in the real-estate-owned industry; and Michael G.

"A sustained high rate of foreclosures in the country, as well as the continued uncertainty within the real estate market and the increasing number of homeowners engaged in alternative, low-payment mortgage programs, led us to develop the FEAC -- with the goal of understanding what the primary causes of foreclosures are and how to better promote sustainable homeownership in the U.S.," Ms. Webb said.
